The racing at Spa has kept the drivers pretty busy over the last few days, and although it was filled with interesting stories within the sessions, extra-curricular activities have been less common. Michael Schumacher celebrated the 20th anniversary since his F1 debut, which meant more cake. Bruno Senna celebrated his return to Formula One with a big hug. And Jenson Button celebrated all of F1 with a demo in Manchester. Points all round!

Movements for Week 30

  • +2 Jenson Button: +2 for his excellent work at the Manchester street demo.
  • +2 Jaime Alguersuari: +2 for his no comment tweet.
  • +2 Kamui Kobayashi: +2 for putting up with awkward pose requests from photographers.
  • +4 Bruno Senna: +4 for his big hug with Eric Boullier - in a series of gifs.
  • +2 Nico Rosberg: +2 for a rather good-looking photo album on Facebook.
  • +2 Vitaly Petrov: +2 for revealing all about Bruno Senna despite no official word from the team at that point.
